I just saw this on dvd, and i thought it was surprisingly good, there were a couple of moments that were entertaining, yet relatable. the whole film was really well-made, and really charming, you can relate to these kids who really made you feel like you were in high school again. a film for all ages.

Los Angeles Times
Here are casual cruelty, crushing heartbreak and pressure from parents and peers, all of which can involve the viewer but are nothing revelatory. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
This is the kind of movie the people in it might have made, which means that its revelatory power as an investigation of teenage life in America is limited. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
Though it could work as effectively as a television vehicle, American Teen is revealing, funny and involving. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Variety
Undeniably entertaining for its zippy presentation. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
What makes Nanette Burstein's movie so powerful is its uncanny sense of familiarity. Full Review
